Some Wildlife in my garden

I know you do not have owners but how are the drycleaners who leave food out for you  please? 

(Do avoid that recent pond as it's deep. I'm sure you have found it by now)

Dove the drycleaner would be so upset if you left.

Talkback: How to improve your soil

It will also keep the carbon to nitrogen ratio, correct for the worms to find and digest. Goldfinch 60.

It will only delay any seed action.

New vegetable bed - help with ideas

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 20:06

I think you are half way there Peter. You just need some fun things to grow. 

Pumpkins and marrows are great to show how fast things grow but they will overtake the area you have. Peas (like you have mentioned is a great idea0 but put some Sunflowers in as we all love then and so does nature.

Radishes are easy and fast growing but they never appealed to me as a kid.

What did appeal was kale and beetroot/ sweet potatoes crisps. You may have to find nutritional yeast for the cheese flavour but after you have enjoyed them then you will be left with the walking stick Kale. The perfect walking stick for kids.

(I'll let you make your own mind up why kids need walking stick but I remember looking forward to them, not sure why.)

Grow your own Tomato sauce from hanging baskets with bush tomatoes.

(This venture is just not a money saver but it is worth doing. It's nice to know that you can make your own (better tasting) sauce but it really is not worth it. Slow cookers and tinned puree is needed and it just becomes too expensive. You can regulate the sugar though and that has to be good.

I think you have done all the rest with strawberries and carrots + others. Perhaps try this with the scraps.

They all love worms

         

What is your weather like?

OH said it's raining money this morning.

I said not to worry it's just change in the weather.

Sorry I stopped for a drink at the new ISOBAR.

Yes Nut I realised that. That is why I suggested a hardening off period. do you think this is  Fred Mead. first time with this plant and do you think he understands how big they grow???.

Mine come back every year but they are always huge and late. (fantastic compost stuff though)

I do like them though. (unfortunately some clients don't)

Too late to cut back cornus Alba aurea?

If you are thinking of putting it straight into the ground then I recommend the above info.

This is one of my favorites with a back drop of silver birch. The good news is that they are grown easily from cuttings.

Talkback: How to improve your soil

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 18:52

Composting on top is a great Idea GWA but it will not destroy weeds unless you plan to try solarization on it. (this can be hard in England)

I know you have good intentions and I appreciate you ideas but digging and weeding is the only endless solution. A hot burn over the top can slow things down but mother nature will catch up in the end. 

Too late to cut back cornus Alba aurea?

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 18:40

You should be ok but be aware of new buds with this early spring again. It is best pruned before the leaves begin to appear so things look good. I might be tempted to leave it for a year. 

Late winter (February) or early spring (March) for pruning.

Check the root ball as I would put it in a bigger pot. (not a huge one, just bigger) 

Need ideas please for a steep slope

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 18:36

What about including a raised pond. It's a all year round interest.
